Fermilab’s Silvia Zorzetti has been awarded the prestigious Early Career Award from the U.S. DOE for her pioneering research in developing technology that will lay the foundations of the quantum internet. The project’s goal is to improve quantum sensors and sensor networks, so as to allow a more efficient conversion of information and quantum signals between different physical platforms

From the DOE Office of Science: Fermilab’s Dr. Marcela Carena was recently named a 2022 DOE Office of Science Distinguished Scientist Fellow. On January 25, 2023, all are invited to join a virtual lecture given by Dr. Carena where she will discuss her research accomplishments, career journey and experiences working at the DOE national laboratories. Registration is required for this free DOE event.

From Science, November 9, 2022: DOE’s Office of Science announced how it will distribute the $1.55 billion provided by the Inflation Reduction Act. Read how the office allocated funding in amounts ranging from $650,000 to $256 million to more than 52 projects already in the works, including Fermilab.

The U.S. Department of Energy allocated funds to its 17 national laboratories from the Inflation Reduction Act to mitigate the rise of project costs as a result of inflation. Fermilab will spend the funding on the lab’s on-going construction projects. This will allow the lab’s major projects to uphold their schedules and keep their commitment to international collaborators.

From the DOE Office of Science, October 26, 2022: Congratulations to Fermilab’s Dr. Marcela Carena on being named Distinguished Scientist Fellow by the Department of Energy for her leadership and influential contributions to particle physics.
